After JUNE, I felt I had achieved what I had wanted with the series, yet the music continued. Things take on a tenser vibe, and the pieces start to fragment. A piece like tuesday 12a has several "movements" to it. It was this direction that continued when I started composing again in March 2006 for METAMORPHOSIS 2.

REVIEW

"July is, of course, the finale in the Harmonium Diaries series and as such acts justifiably as something of a conclusive statement. It's oddly tense and demanding rather than pure subtlety, but at the end of the day a dramatic ambience that by and large follows on from its predecessors.  "
